On Thursday, July 22, during his presentation to the UK House of Commons, Vaccine Minister Nadhim Zahawi confirmed that the government will seek to implement the use of a vaccination passport to gain access to some activities.

During his presentation he also reported that they are looking at administering an annual booster of the COVID or CCP Virus vaccine.

"The operational plan is to go early—in early September—for both the covid boost and the flu campaign. However, he will know that flu is not in the covid category in that it is endemic. We are hoping to transition covid towards where flu is with an annual vaccination programme, but it is a very different virus to deal with."

Regarding the vaccine passport, he said that it will be required, starting in September, to enter for example nightclubs and that a negative test for COVID or one for natural immunity will not be sufficient to gain entry.
